[male #1]

'Okay, this can't happen again.'

'This mask is not

where it was supposed to be.'

The flowers were not

where they're supposed to be.

So this needs to be

on stage left.

'This needs be on stage right.'

'And that's that-how

that works.'

[male #2]

'Arms, make your last embrace.'

'And lips, you are

the doors of breath.'

Seal with a righteous kiss

the deal I have made

with death forever.

And then in this part,

I go in for the kiss.

Ah, Romeo, don't get

ahead of yourself.

See you on set.

[ female #1 ]

So here's my take

on a high school

veteran journalist that I am.

Just about everything we do,

we do because we are afraid.

[male #3]

'Hey, Angela, over here.'

Afraid of not being able

to get into college.

Afraid of not being able

to pay for college.

Afraid of not being able to

meet our parents' expectations.

Afraid of being

socially isolated.

Afraid of our futures.

Afraid of our pasts.

Afraid of being alone.

Jordan, Angela,

let me get a pic.


And even though a part of me

knows that these fears are

for the most part,

suburban, cry me a river

hashtag stop-whining-like

a-little-baby type problems

it is also true

that sometimes

our fear

is completely justified.

My dear Juliet.

Why are you still so beautiful?


Did you get good pics?

Oh, sorry for asking.


'I'll forget

about all the bad luck'

that has troubled me.

Eyes, look out

for the last time.

Arms, make your last embrace.

And lips, you are

the doors to breath.

- Powerful performance.

- Nate.

Well, seriously though,

Jordan just oozes masculinity.

He's like Brando out there.

And Angela is Juliet.

I mean, she plays

comatose really well.

She's actually almost

making me forget

the degree to which

she's a full-blown bitch.



Come, bitter poison.

Come, unsavory guide,

you desperate pilot.

Set the sea-weary ship

into the rocks.

Here's to my love.


'That pharmacist was honest.'

His drugs work quickly.

So I die with a kiss.









Somebody, help me!

[bell rings]

[female #2]

'When a free radical is

introduced to a closed system'

the potential result is an

explosive chemical reaction.


Excuse me, Jane, if I may?

Uh, yes, Ms. Pope.

Hi, everyone.

So, we've all been through

a very traumatic experience

with the death of Jordan.

And I would like

to introduce Emily Hodges.

She's a grief counselor.


This is gonna be awkward.

Is your mom counseling

or grieving--

- Shut up.

- I'm just saying.



I know many of you

are feeling anxiety..


deep loss, and sadness.

These feelings

are very hard to process

and they are completely normal.

Please come talk to me.

I have an office

next to Ms. Pope's

and my door is always open.

And on a final note

there will likely be reporters

poking around here

over the next few days

asking questions about Jordan.

I wanna be very clear.

No one is to talk to the media.

Let's just keep this

within the Westbrook family.

Thank you, Jane.

[indistinct chatter]

Must be so weird.

What? Being the grief

counselor's daughter

and having her right here

all up in my business?

Oh, yeah. It's delightful.


Come on, you guys are so tight.

See, but I'm working

on the whole teen angst thing

and I feel like I should

be saying she sucks.

- Hey, Nate.

- What am I, chopped liver?

Wait for it. God, almost..

Wait for it.

Yeah. Got it. Yeah.

Nate, that's so mean.

It's all part of my charm.
